SPOGA HORSE February 2019 – uvex news
A secure grip of the reins is crucial in the saddle, even under sweaty conditions. No matter what happens, uvex sumair is there for you, so you can be there for your horse. Sweat and moisture shouldn’t get in the way of a firm, flexible grip: the new uvex sumair’s material mix lives up to it promise.
Sweat and moisture are part of any athletic performance. All the more so in riding, as the rider’s hands are in contact with perspiration from both rider and horse. The new uvex sumair gloves combat this problem with high-tech materials. The gloves’ breathable mesh material generously covering the outer hand and thumb wicks away any moisture that may accumulate. On the palm and between the fingers, an equally-thin, high-quality polyurethane ensures extreme resistance to slipping and abrasion, offering a firm grip whilst maintaining sensitivity. No matter how hard your workout is, these gloves will keep you in control.
Their highly functional material composition also lends them a unique, stylish look: glossy synthetic leather, polyurethane and mesh in a range of colours. Black detailing and a clean sporty line make these gloves icons of style. The uvex sumair also has a short cuff for a smart look, even in warm weather.
In accordance with its philosophy, uvex refrains from using animal products in the manufacture of its riding gloves. Like all uvex equestrian riding gloves, uvex sumair gloves are touchscreen-compatible and machine washable.
Made in Germany
Available in black, black/blue and black/pink
